The only two Euro countries that drive on the left side of the road are UK and Ireland, everybody else uses the right side, just like us.
Plus, I don’t recall if the Common Market countries, predecessor of the EU, had gotten around to pollution controls and such in the 1960’s. Half of Europe was still Iron Curtain countries, at the time, and many countries were not part of the Common Market.
Ford and GM had been making cars in UK and Europe for decades and regulations would have been nothing new to them..................
only UK is right hand drive, rest of europe is same as us
I don’t thiMk that they hold the record. The company American Muscle that specializes in newer Mustang pats has been drawing thousands to their show at Maple Grove Drag strip near Reading, PA. for a number of years. I did not attend this year but I believe there were over 3,000 there.
If you are a Mustang guy you have to go.
Cyprus, Guensey (UK), Ireland, Isle of Man(UK), Jersey(UK), Malta, United Kingdom
If you want to see FE engined Mustangs & other Fords with FE
engines go to the FE reunion & drag race at Beaver Spring Drag Way in PA. lots OF Cobra Jets & 427’s in all of the Ford body styles. It is usually held on the last weekend in April. They have great videos on YouTube from past years.
My son had a 68 fast back with a 427 out of a wrecked T Bolt. It ran high 11’s. This was 25 years ago.
The rumor since the early 1980’s was Carroll Shelby put a few 427’s in some ‘67 GT500’s but 40 years later you think one would have been in a magazine or something or sold at BJ for a few $ million.
Shelby originally hoped to get as many as 50 of the 427 cars built. The single example does still exist - Mecum auctioned it back around January. It went for over $2 Million.
